Government and council roadside advertising a waste

I recently noticed some local street signs have been replaced with a new style of sign that advertises the Central Coast Council.

Will this new style replace all existing street signs?

Everyone familiar with the farcical amalgamation with the many failures will scoff at this suggestion.

The logistics and costs associated with replacing and recycling all street signs in the local government area is information that senior council officers are unlikely to release.

It is unnecessary and wasteful expenditure.

However, the Australian Government and the Central Coast Council have used the road verge to advertise the Central Coast Road Package, among other things.

Neither the road verge advertising nor the new street sign advertising is in the interests of the public.

It is simply promoting the interests of those in power at both levels of government.

A Federal election is to be held before May and Robertson is up for grabs, being a marginal seat.

This roadside advertising shows the Federal Government has more interest in being re-elected than in supporting the Council to provide essential services at low cost to the unfortunate ratepayers.

Why are Peninsula road verges being used to advertise the Federal and Local Government actions that are essential day-to-day projects?
